Why is lawnmower servicing important?
We like to compare it to looking after and maintaining your car. Usually, at the first sign of a small blip with your vehicle you would go and get it checked out and serviced, not leave it till the problem intensifies and all of a sudden your car no longer works. It should be the same with lawnmower servicing.
Most people will wait till their mower has completely failed rather than addressing and repairing a small issue that surfaces in order to prevent bigger problems further down the line. This neglect might be due to the fact they will use their mower less frequently, and as a consequence may not notice when something feels different. Regular lawnmower servicing will help keep on top of any minor issues that crop up and not only increase the longevity and performance of your mower, but lower any repair costs in the near future.
How often should you consider lawnmower servicing?
There isn’t a straightforward answer to this question. If you own a mower that is tasked with maintaining a small patch of grass then it will understandably get through less work than a mower in a larger sized garden. That is why it is best to record usage in hours rather than months.
Standard practice would be to service your mower once a year, no matter the size or engine type of your lawnmower. However, if you are a professional contractor you will want to consider lawnmower servicing on a more frequent basis. Late October-November, the end of the grass growing season, is a great time to service your machine.
How does lawnmower servicing differ for petrol and electric models?
A petrol model will always need more attention and servicing than an electric one, but both will require blade sharpening after 25-30 hours of cutting to maintain a sharp and crisp cut during use. All moving parts on a mower should be greased after 50 hours of use. It is also important to ensure that petrol engines receive a regular oil change, but stay clear from using car engine oil because small engines run a lot hotter than cars and require oil that performs at higher temperatures.
Electric and cordless models still need a seasonal overhaul. In order to prevent risk of overheating it is common practice for our team to remove and clean all moving parts. These movable parts can loosen with vibration after prolonged use which is why we tighten each part in order to ensure maximum safety during operation.
